Face Masks during COVID-19. Tips and tutorials
When and how to use masks during Coronavirus(COVID-19)
According to the WHO, if you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if:
you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
if you are coughing or sneezing.
Beyond WHO recommendations, health authorities in some countries are expected to reverse its previous stance and officially recommend that people cover their faces in public.
Let's not forget that in the COVID-19 pandemic there is the case of people who are ill without knowing it because they have no symptoms. These people also infect others despite having no symptoms.
How to wear a mask according o WHO
If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose it properly. Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Before putting on a mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.
Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you do, clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp and do not re-use single-use masks.
To remove the mask: remove it from behind (do not touch the front of mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
